It is heartbreaking to see a loved one suffer, especially if we're caring for one that is bedridden because of ailment or injury. Whether your loved one is temporarily bedridden or permanently bedridden, making sure they are comfortable and avoid injury is extremely critical. Adding an extra layer of support with a mattress overlay is suggested. Overlays help in the prevention, management and treatment of pressure ulcers, which are common consequences of bedridden patients.. . .
Overlays, or pads, easily fit over any mattress and can offer enormous benefit to bedridden patients. As a more affordable option to a standard pressure mattress, these pressure sore pads offer the same amount of protection from common consequences to being bedridden.
Our gel pads for bed sores offer pressure redistribution, allowing the patient's body to rest easily and naturally. Most spring mattresses cause harmful stress to the body while a gel overlay forms to the patient's body, granting her support from head to toe and keeping her from developing pressure ulcers and sores. A unique type of overlay is our alternating pressure pump and pad system. These mattress pads quietly inflate and deflate air cells in the mattress overlay, producing consistent air flow which redistributes pressure throughout the body.
